So much for the old CCA/MSSA argument that striped bass are "skinny" and not getting enough to eat in the bay:

Maryland Department of Natural Resources Documents that Fat Striped Bass and Bluefish in the Chesapeake Bay are Beginning to Look Like "Blimps"

Maryland Department of Natural Resources fishing reports throughout the 2005 fishing season indicate that not only did sport anglers enjoy "some of the best large fish angling they've ever seen in the bay", but also that the fish caught by these anglers were both very healthy and very fat. According to the DNR, "One thing is sure though is that [striped bass] must be growing fast based on how much they're eating; they are fat. If the striped bass are fat, the bluefish are even fatter. Many are starting to look like blimps; they just never stop eating if given the chance. They almost seem to ooze oil through their skin like warm fat through cheesecloth when you hold them, real grease balls."

Just the usual spin by JB. He attempts to use fishing reports to as scientific evidence of " blimps ". Got a link to that study ?[wink]

While JB's link is certainly not a study, it does exclusively quote MD DNR'S fishing reports. Everyone agree with them ?
